Celebrate With Silly Jilly

  • The kids will have a blast!
  • You, as the party planner, can better relax and enjoy the big day too!
  • Count on me to be prompt and dependable!

Virtual Shows

Make your virtual party a hit! During this time of physical distancing, I'm helping kids virtually play together as they laugh at my antics, shout the magic words, and warn me that my phone is a donut. My Zoom show is perfect for birthday parties, holiday parties, church youth groups, best buddies groups, scout troops, and other organizations. I usually do about five minutes of meet-and-greet and pre-show gags, then a 20-25 minute show full of audience interaction.
$95 for up to 99 families.

Or ask Silly Jilly to make your child or grandchild a six-minute video for them to watch again and again, for example, a happy birthday video. The video will include magic, jokes and balloons mentioning the child by name a few times.
$30 (Or $45 if I don't have a second reason to be in make-up.)

Silly Jilly With Winter Balloons

In Person Balloon Twisting

For small events, how about booking Silly Jilly to twist fancy balloon animals, like pictured above? For large events, I recommend balloons I can make in less than 90 seconds, for example, swords, teddy bears, and unicorn wands.
The first half hour is $145, and additional half-hours, $50.
Pricing is for locations within 40 minutes of Webster Groves, Missouri. Most other St. Louis metro locations, $10 more.

Kids laugh like crazy at Silly Jilly the Clown's show.

Magic Shows Full of Belly Laughs

Sitting and laughing at my live magic show is so much fun! The show is physically distanced with no touching of my props. Ages three to seven love the show most.
$145 (if within 40 minutes of Webster Groves), includes: ⭐ A few minutes of pre-show gags, ⭐ 20-25 minute laugh-out-loud show,
⭐ A bag with six fancy balloon animals or fifteen simple, and I'll usually make one balloon sculpture there as the kids watch. Add additional pre-made fancy balloon animals for $2 or simple balloon animals $1.
Add live balloon twisting to the show for $50 per half-hour.

Book for any size event outside and probably any size inside event in a large venue, for example, a school or community center.  If your county, city, or state has a regulation against gatherings of a specific size, your event would need to be within those regulations for me to perform.
For in-home gatherings in the near future, I am only performing at those if less than ten people.

Shows are performed with a 6+ feet separation. Kids help out at a distance by yelling the magic word or wiggling their fingers. I do not pass out any props. If I call someone to come on stage, I’ll step away.

My balloon apron is loaded at least two days prior, and pre-made balloon animals are made the day before your event. I use a pump I have not touched in two days. At the party, I sanitize my hands before I get out of my car, then again right before I start making balloon animals. I do not pass out a balloon menu. I stay six feet away from the kids, except for the two seconds that I had them their balloon.

I always wear a mask indoors. Occasionally, I will remove my mask outside if the party guests are not wearing one.

Without a mask, my husband and I have not been within six feet of anyone outside of our household for more than a few seconds, not even my mom, since March 15.  Except I stayed at my niece and nephews’ house for a few days in October to give my sister-in-law a break from homeschooling, but I will not do that again.  The last time I ate at a restaurant was March 12.

The only balloon delivery service I do is small to medium size balloon animals and balloon hats. I’m not getting into balloon decor but recommend you hire one of my colleagues who specializes in balloon deliveries, including balloon bouquets and yard art. The below five businesses are excellent at large sculptures and dependable.

You may take photos and videos of my performance, and please share them with friends or the public. Fine with Silly Jilly if you do whatever you want with the photos or videos. When taking photos, remember to stand behind or to the side of Silly Jilly too, and get photos of the party guests’ reactions.

Notice there is no “we” on this page.  Book Silly Jilly, and she is who will be at your party, the entertainer with five-star reviews.  Also, if you confirm a few days before your party, be comfortable knowing you have confirmed with the entertainer.

 

Pre-pandemic, I made balloon animals at Syberg’s Chesterfield Tuesdays, Serendipity Ice Cream spring and summer Mondays, Pediatric Dentistry of Sunset Hills once a month, and Eckert’s alternating fall weekends. Those performances are temporarily canceled.

I will travel almost anywhere. For example, I have performed at several Columbia, MO events, the Ste. Genevieve county fair, a company party in Branson, nursing home in Anna, IL and birthday parties in Greenville, IL, Carlyle, IL, and Gerald, MO.  Call or e-mail for pricing.  But for parties located about two hours from Webster Groves (Cape Girardeau, Hannibal, and Springfield, IL), it is Silly Jilly’s regular price ($195 for the first hour, $100 each additional hour) plus a usual travel fee of $100 weekday and $120 weekend. But for every half-hour past an hour, $10 discount.

 

I even make my amazing balloon animals and hats at adult events, for example, 40th birthday parties and nursing homes.
Ages three to seven especially love my gags and magic show. If you would like me to do my show at an eight, nine, or ten-year-old birthday party, I’ll make my show a little shorter and will still be a success as long as almost all the kids are ten and younger.
I don’t worry about impressing parents with my magic, figuring nothing will be more magical for the parents than the enjoyment I provide the children at the party.

Especially during the pandemic, I want you to be comfortable canceling your event if an attendee is concerned they may have a contagious virus, and for you not to worry about a non-refundable deposit.
But I would appreciate a partial payment if you cancel after I have already started to put on my make-up or have already pre-made balloons for your party.

You can either pay me (Venmo @Jill-ColquhounSchmidt, check to Jill Schmidt, or cash) or donate my fee to my Feeding America fundraiser or Charity Water fundraiser.
